Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: most overrated dead show ever?

ditto on June '76....

probably a good time to point out, though, the difficulty with this topic--that is, none of us are saying these are BAD's a matter of degree when it comes to your definition of "overrated."

In no way did I mean to imply that 2/26/77 is a "bad" show. It's great, and yes, the H>S>F is one of my faves, but I call it most overrated b/c it's achieved some kind of iconic status w/something like 80 plus reviews and just glowing "best of" recs.

I just think THAT makes it overrated for the reasons I laid out before.

perhaps that's what R&B meant by his take on 10/29/77 and that's OK, as long as he doesn;t call it a "bad" show!
